A city’s independents are the designer makers and gallery curators to coffee shop creators and one off boutiques. Are you a curious visitor ready to uncover Cardiff’s character, buy local gifts or treats and support home grown business? Maybe you’re a local whose routine needs rejuvenating to include new on-your-doorstep gems? Join us to shop, eat and experience real Cardiff.
‘Get Lost in Cardiff’ is the vision of Kirsty Patrick. As a resident lighting designer and homeware shop owner, Kirsty is at the centre of Cardiff’s creative community. This map is a curated insider’s guide to the best places to shop, eat and experience. Lose yourself in a totally independent trail of Cardiff. All illustrated by Lucy Dickson.
Shop in beautiful Victorian arcades. Savour a coffee stop or lunch that uses local produce. Immerse yourself in art. Wander around wonderful Bute Park. Marvel at the National Museum. Explore the Castle. Take home tales of the real city. Get lost in Cardiff.
Create your own Cardiff adventures and share them with the Get Lost in Cardiff team. We’d love to see how you’ve been inspired! Use hashtag #getlostincardiff with Instagram and Twitter @getlostincardiff.
